Up until this past Monday night, the only real hatred towards Andy Reid was coming from Philadelphia Eagles fans. But after Bryce Brown racked up 178 yards and two touchdowns against the Carolina Panthers, Reid can add fantasy owners to the list. The Eagles are notorious for wanting to throw the ball. So much so, that LeSean McCoy could be arguably be perceived as a better wide receiver than a running back. The Eagles have a long history of just refusing to run the ball, we ‘re use to it, and defense’s expect it, but that’s not why Bryce Browns was successful in week 12. With backup quarterback Nick Foles filling in for Mike Vick and injuries across the board including to starting running back LeSean McCoy, fans were shocked to see the Eagles coaching staff call a balance gameplan. The Eagles had 21 passing attempts and 25 rushing attempts in a heartbreaking loss. This is very uncharacteristic for anyone who follows the Eagles -well, not the losing part, but fantasy owners were shoc...

Bryce Brown set Eagles rookie rushing record on Monday Night

Bryce Brown really hadn’t been heard from since a stellar high school career that ended in 2008. Until Monday night, when he filled in for injured Philadelphia running back LeSean McCoy. Making his first start at any level since his senior season at Wichita East (Kansas) High, Brown set an Eagles rookie record with 178 yards rushing, including touchdown runs of 65 and five yards...

3 bright spots from Philadelphia Eagles’ 30-22 loss to the Carolina Panthers

His name is Brown. That’s what they call him. Image via the Philadelphia Eagles. The words are more difficult to come by with each loss. What more is there to say? The nightmare that is the 2012 season for the Philadelphia Eagles continues. In a season with not much positivity, I can’t bear to write another somber account of yet another Eagles loss. At least not at the moment...

Philadelphia Eagles: Where Will Andy Reid be Coaching Next Year?

In a year that began with the team owner saying that another 8-8 season wouldn’t be enough for Andy Reid to keep his job and the starting quarterback claiming that the Eagles were about to be a dynasty, a 3-8 start with seven consecutive losses surely wasn’t the way the long-time Philly head coach drew things up. So if team owner Jeffrey Lurie is true to his word and lets Andy...

Embattled Eagles, Andy Reid stay the course

A seven-game losing streak won't get Andy Reid to change his ways. As usual, Reid accepted blame and pointed the finger directly at himself following the Philadelphia Eagles' latest loss, 30-22 to the Carolina Panthers on Monday night. ''I take full responsibility. There's a way to get through and I'm not doing it right now,'' Reid said Tuesday....

With most playoffs beginning this week or the next, your week 13 fantasy football picks could be key. Bryce Brown, RB, Philadelphia Eagles: His 178-yard, two-touchdown debut was magic for several owners who needed a Monday night miracle, but take note that Brown’s role will be reduced once LeSean McCoy returns from a concussion suffered…

Panthers 30, Eagles 22

PHILADELPHIA -- The Carolina Panthers struck for two long touchdown passes in the first half, and their defense came up with a crucial fourth-down stop in the fourth quarter of a 30-22 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night at Lincoln Financial Field. The Panthers (3-8) won despite a big day by Eagles rookie running back Bryce Brown, who rushed for 178 yards. However...

Jason Babin Just Another Example of How Andy Reid Changed

One year removed from an 18-sack season, Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin was abruptly released yesterday.  I don’t mean to pile-on here, but I can’t say I’m sad to see him go. In fact, I was very surprised they signed him (again) in 2011. I normally do not play the “I told you so” game, but…I told you so.  Back in June of 2011, I wrote an article saying why I didn’t...

The Best Moments From Panthers-Eagles

Another week gone by and the Phillies have still won a game more recently than the Eagles have. The best would be if the Flyers won a game before the next time the Eagles did. And that’s with the NHL losing a full season to the lockout. Not that Andy Reid had any chance of salvaging his job with a good performance in a prime time game against another team, but he couldn’t even...

NFL Rumors: Casey Matthews Hoping Philadelphia Eagles Replace Andy Reid With Chip Kelly?

Casey Matthews is suffering through a miserable season under head coach Andy Reid with the Philadelphia Eagles. After a 3-1 start, the Eagles have dropped seven straight and Reid has lost control of this team. It is all but inevitable that 2012 will be Reid’s final season coaching the eagles, and if that is indeed the case, Matthews has a suggestion for who the next head coach...

Michael Vick Still Not Medically Cleared

Eagles head coach Andy Reid mentioned that QB Michael Vick still hasn’t been cleared from a concussion that he suffered a few weeks ago. “If the young guys are available to play, we’re going to put them in and play them,” Reid said. “If that’s the situation, I’m not going to hesitate to do that. But we’ll see how things go here as we continue to roll on.” Vick...

If Reid Wants To Go Back to Vick, Jeff Lurie Needs To Step In

Ever since Michael Vick went down with his concussion, I've been pounding the drum that Nick Foles should remain the Eagles' starting QB for the rest of the season, regardless of how he or the team performs. I even went so far as to say that Andy Reid would be selfish not do so. Before all the Vick lovers come crying, this is not about him.  My reasoning for starting Foles...

A New Era Of Eagles Fan

Something something, something something Time was, an Eagle team that was as bad as this one would have been booed out of the stadium. They weren't. Not even when they fell behind 14-3, with the defense giving up points in ways that redefined the term easy. Time was, an Eagle coach that called a fourth and inches play with a slow-developing run to the running back, rather...
